Philips is out with a new dual SIM phone, part of its Xenium family – X510. The all-touchscreen device is made for markets of Russia, China and other parts of Asia where this functionality (having two SIM cards working at the same time) is well appreciated.
Feature wise, we’re talking about a low-to-mid range handset, sporting such things as a 3.1-inch QVGA display, 2-megapixel camera, dual-band (900/1800 MHz) radio and a microSD memory card slot. In addition, there are few games pre-installed on the device, along with a media player, email client and I guess some web browser.
I still don’t understand why Philips doesn’t bring its phones to the Western hemisphere (ok they do, but very few models), especially those with dual SIM capabilities. I know few people who would really dig the idea of having such a device. Likewise, I also know people who would want to charge their device only few times a month, and Philips also has those kinds of phones.
